The Return of MAC Lavender Whip - MAC Baking Beauties Collection 2013

MAC Lavender Whip is one of those cult shades that I never understood, as you can see from my old photo

I own a tube (somewhere) and as you can tell from my lack of enthusiasm I never reach for it.
It really all boils down to preference and what you suit and my little round face does not carry purple tones
all that well but for those that adore the shade and have waited forever for it's return your wait is nearly over.
Come April in the US and May in the UK MAC's Baking Beauties collection will hit the counters 
and you can grab a Lavender Whip lipstick and many other sugary sweet shades to boot!

  1. Love the sound of this collection! Thanks for posting :)

    S xx

  2. Oooh this sounds good! All over those paint pots xx

  3. While it sounds nice enough there are so many things in the permanent line that I would buy over these, I reckon I will give it a miss.

  4. This collection sounds great :) xx

  5. I'm usually not a fan of anything that's labeled as "lilac", "lavender" or pretty much anything else that's in the purple range.

  6. This sounds fantastic! Paint pots, yay! And lustre drops, been dying to get my hands on some! This is right up my street xx

  7. I actually wanted to buy Lavender Whip so I'm looking forward to it!

  8. Lovely colour!


  9. Love the sounds of the face powders but I'm with you on the lilac lipstick front! xx

  10. Ooh wow, that lipstick is such a cool colour :)

  12. I love the lipsticks but I'd love them even more if they were a matte finish, such a shame :(

  13. That Mac colour is beautiful! May check out some of the other suggestions!

  14. I just know im going to want all the paintpots and the glitters, I'll camp outside if necessary (slight exaggeration) x

  15. I so don't suit purple either, as much as I wish I did! MAC need to stop bringing out such nice collection, I want everything from them this year! x

  16. This is a beautiful colour! The collection sounds amazing :)


  17. I like purple lipstick, but I suit most dark shaded, not lavender or baby violets...

  18. Now this collection sounds right up my street!!! I love the sound of all the paintpots... I want all of them!

  19. Well, I wish I could purchase your lavender whip since you don't reach for it. Temptalia did a comparison of the 2008 version versus the 2013, and the new version is pinker. I was hoping for the original shade.
